15 Questions to ask your wedding photographer?

1.What is your style or approach to wedding photography?

Our approach to wedding photography is candid/photojournalist. We love to document your wedding day beautifully and candidly making sure we tell your complete wedding story. All of our wedding collections are comprehensive in their coverage. We are there to document your story and the details that make up your wedding day. We also love to make some beautiful day of wedding portraits of you two that you are going to want to print large and hang on the walls of your home.

    2. What makes you different from other photographers?

When you hire Jayme and Russ to be your wedding photographers you don’t have to worry about time on your wedding day. We also offer Bridal Sessions to our Brides that would love to have beautiful photos of them in their wedding gown. We can do this either on site or in our 4000’ square foot studio. The benefit to having your bridal photos done a month or two early is that you can spend more time with your friends and family on the wedding day and less time being led around on your wedding day by your photographers.

   3. How long have you been photographing weddings?

We have been photographing weddings together since 2007. Weddings are our primary photographic focus.

  4. Will you give me the negatives or digital images? And is there a fee for that?

We cull and color correct all images to give you a consistent, beautiful look. We offer our clients personal printing rights and your wedding images are available for you to cherish for a lifetime.

5. How soon after the wedding should we expect our pictures?

To give your wedding the attention to detail it deserves. We deliver your wedding within 4-6 weeks from your event. Of course, we usually love to blog or Facebook teaser images so you can see how beautiful your wedding day was and how much fun you had.

6. What is your ideal client?

Our ideal client loves straightforward story telling imagery. Wants their day documented thoroughly and loves beautiful photos.

7.  Should we do a “first look” and what is a “first look?”

A first look is when you and your loved one carve our some time before the wedding ceremony to have a private moment and see each other. We like to document this moment. But we also love it when the Bride and Groom see each other for the first time as they Bride walks down the aisle. It is a personal decision that we can help you make after weighing the pros and cons.

8. How far in advance should we book?

You should book your wedding photographers as soon as you know the ones you want. Otherwise, they may not be available. We photograph a limited number of weddings per year to keep us fresh, motivated, and excited.

9. What if we have not secured our wedding venue and our date changes?

Call us.


10.  What type of equipment do you use?

This is a funny question to us. It is used primarily to show off to other photographers. We use professional Canon DSLR’s and Fuji mirrorless cameras. With professional grade lens and flash units. Think of it this way. Have you ever eaten at a fancy restaurant and wondered what kind of oven or cookware the chef used. The important thing is that your photographer has backup equipment in case something breaks. And it will break. That is all.

11. What kind of information do you need from me before the wedding day?

About one month before your destination wedding we send out a comprehensive questionnaire that will help us coordinate your wedding day and take care of all of your important details.

12.  How do we know if you are the wedding photographer for us?

We love meeting over coffee or tea. Or if you are searching from afar we use Skype or Facetime before making your decision with any wedding photographers.

13. We want to book you, what is next?

If you are local to us, we love to meet in person to take care of all the details. If you are away from us, we can take care of all the details online. Contract, deposit, payment details can all be managed online quickly and conveniently.

14. How can we get in touch?

Please give us a call at 541-520-6582 or use our convenient date checker.

15. What other things do you guys like to photograph?

We love people. Jayme does glamor and pin-up photography. Russell just loves photography and especially capturing unique once in a lifetime moments.
